    That was just fun.Never in doubt and we did not ease off. Think Karnick may have hit a wall. Long season and a lot of minutes banging inside without much help this semester. Two more games to win.



    Wow. This team peaking at the right time.


    Tremendous team effort again. Army has struggled from the field lately, but holding any team to 29% is quite a defensive night. Plus out rebounding the physical Black Knights 52 to 41 is impressive. Although Lehigh had plenty of Army missed shots to go after.

    Players certainly deserve credit for the effort and execution. But how about a tip of our caps to coach and his staff for gradually getting these guys playing at this level of team basketball. Particularly in light of our lack of front court depth. Hopeful we can continue to improve these next two games and into the league tournament.

    Very nice win. We looked very good tonight and took care of business at home. Two big things stood out to me tonight and were the keys to the victory. Defense. And ball movement !!!!! Multiple players were touching the ball on possessions and getting it to the open man. A lot of passing tonight and unselfish play. We played outstanding defense tonight.

    Hats off to the staff for really getting the best out of these kids through the past month or so. Not only are we playing better but the team is having fun while doing it. Let’s finish strong.



    When was the last time 9 different Lehigh players were credited with at least one assist?

    Lehigh currently sits in 4th:

    Bucknell 14-2
    Navy 10-6
    Colgate 9-6
    Lehigh 9-7
    BU 8-8
    Holy Cross 7-9
    Lafayette 7-9
    Loyola Maryland 6-9
    Army West Point 6-10
    American 3-13

    Colgate: at Loyola, ARMY, HOLY CROSS
    Navy: at Bucknell, LOYOLA
    Lehigh: at Loyola, LAFAYETTE
    BU: LAFAYETTE, at Army

    Lehigh is peaking at the right time but there is no scope for error.

    If my understanding is correct
    * In head-to-head with Navy, Lehigh went 0-2 vs. Navy in reg season
    * In head-to-head with Colgate, Lehigh wen 1-1 vs. Colgate but beat Bucknell once while Colgate went 0-2 vs. them
    * In three way tie scenario with Navy, Colgate, and Lehigh, Colgate went 3-1 vs. Navy and Lehigh, Navy went 2-2, Lehigh went 1-3, so in that scenario Colgate would be No. 2 seed, Navy would be No. 3 seed, Lehigh would be No. 4 seed

    Netting this out, best case scenario is No. 2 seed, but we would need Navy to lose twice, Colgate to lose at least once and Lehigh to win out

    If Lehigh wins out, they are guaranteed no worse than 4th seed.

    However, if they LOSE out, they still could possibly have to play a game on Tuesday.

    Going to be an exciting week.
